I have been working as a behavior therapist in ABA services for children with autism for close to three years. I have been an RBT for over a year. ABA is about increasing positive behaviors and reducing or redirecting interfering behaviors. With that we work on a lot of different types of programs such as fine motor, gross motor, language skills, self-help skills, academic skills. It's been a super interesting and overall positive experience. I have gained experience in time management, working with and talking with families, working with and talking with follow therapists, and writing reports and updating graphs. However, this field is known for burning a lot of people out. It's a lot of hard work in dealing with maladaptive behaviors. However, like I said I gained amazing experience and learned a lot about clinical setting that I know I will be able to use in the SLP field.
